    WWF Smackdown! CAW Moves FAQ        \

               ===================
                  WHAT IS THIS?
               ===================
    
    Quite simply, it's a product of my frustration in creating a character.
    This FAQ is for if you don't want to keep switching back and forth from
    the "Ability" and "Moves" menus.  This is especially helpful if you already
    know what moves you need to have, and want to know how many points it'll
    cost you.  To access different moves, you must fulfill that level or skill
    for the category.  Speaking of points, here's the scale of points required
    for each level:
    
    	Level 1 = 0  points
    	Level 2 = 6  points
    	Level 3 = 18 points
    	Level 4 = 38 points
    	Level 5 = 68 points
    
    Well, now that you see the relevence of point distribution, on to the moves!
